<DusXMT>you download it, and then run $ guix download file:///path/to/lifs-xx.x.x.tar.Xz
<DusXMT>Or I guess you could use guix download directly on the url
<DusXMT>I know this is a silly question, but I've just had to ask it: When any user can install packages onto the system, doesn't that mean he could potentially fill the entire disk in a multi-user system?
<saul>DusXMT, if the user is authorized to create files then couldn't she just as easily (more easily, rather) do the same with 'dd'?
<DusXMT>saul: Not if there's a quota on his disk space. But I know, it's not a serious question, it just sparked in my mind when I was trying to think of possible security disadvantages of the Guix way of packaging
<DusXMT>Other than that, I couldn't come up with anything
<DusXMT>ah, false alarm,, it was just installing the headers... but still, doesn't guix ship with guile to build the .scm files of the update? Or is it more than just .scm files that guix pull pulls? (it's building texinfo atm)
<tadni>Ah, njak left. I was going to say that's neat.
<tadni>hydra.gnu.org seems to finally be up again!
